Harrowing account of an "illegitimate" girl growing up in rural South Carolina, enduring repeated rape and other forms of abuse yet somehow forging a powerful identity that never transcends but truly contends with the environment she has no option but to endure.
Bone, an illegitimate child in a family of social outcasts, sees her mother's happiness with her new husband and will not tell when the stepfather begins abusing her in the 1950s.
